job was to the introduction changed.

[laughter] i heard the county attorney from redwood city once had a woman lawyer on the staff and i thought that was encouraging. unaided appointment. in california they elect the county attorney. so he gave me an appointment he was very ninth set -- nice and agreeable and did say he had a woman on his staff and she did well and he wou
-paying position and if they went to law school they go to corporate law and may be bored to tears but want to do it for five to ten years to get the money to then be able to do their passion and that is the difference. when i wrote passages in the 1970s, the most famous business book and remains today what color is your parachute and the thesis was starch out following your passion. who can afford to do that as of 25-year-old who has finished college? they have to work and get some -- takes a decade to take -- pay off those college loans unless they came from a wealthy family. the other thing that i think is a big advance is the blue regeneration which was the generation that inherited the feminist revolution was 80% white. the generation of young people today is far more diversified and there are a lot of young african-american, asian-american, indian american, hispanics who voted for obama or very much responsible for the reelection of obama and are helping to mentor younger poor women which were left out of the first feminist revolution. poor women really didn't have a lot to do for them or e
. they are important and enforceable law but we need them to do it in a way that is fair and we need to find out how to hold them accountable because a lot of their actions can and do produce in justices in the system. >> host: professor davis is the power institutionalized and tell all or just developed over the years? >> guest: the system of public prosecutions started right around the time of the democracy when we had this view that we wanted to vote for people and hold them accountable the people choose the individuals to perform these functions, and so when we start to get this prosecution because in the past there used to be practices, individuals, private individuals are able to bring charges against other individuals and they have to pay for it. that didn't last very long and then there was the prosecution system for the state and local system, so all of our states except for about four of them had elected officials for the state. federal prosecutors are appointed but state and local our elective officials and that ev process is supposed to be the way that we the people hold prosecutors acco
that the job market out there. be the even more fearful than during the recession, which is the law. they're even less like a quit even though we should've expected a big increase in the recovery started. the more reason you can get that water level up even though you're adding a slaughter is because the number of jobs in terms of points is even lower than normal. one measure of how hard it is is to get the number of hires each month compared to the number of people unemployed and looking as well as the number of people who lived given up looking for work. you can see how the ratio has gone up and pretty much been stuck since 2009. we haven't really seen the number of jobs out there matching the number of people who are looking for work. and that gives you some idea of why this quit rate has not gone up, white state so though. people have said good idea of how hard it is to go and find a job. there's two groups of people being hurt the most. people at 55 and they basically lose their jobs there's a lot of trouble trying to find it and also very young people who are in train the job market

brutality. initially those armed patrols were completely legal. they have studied the law and they knew what distance they needed to stand. when the guns could not be loaded in the cars and when a felon could not carry a handgun and all the very specific legislation around when and where it was legal and they emulated tactics done in l.a. and started to patrol the police and stand up. this is true of the local following. young adults who said that his power. that is standing up. we are going to join in and we are not just going to sit there and talk about the revolution and the revolutionary action movement but this gives us a way to actually stand up against brutality. when this really change to a different scale when they were on patrol in oakland standing up and following the police and patrolling the police. this is changes when the young man was killed in richmond north of oakland and neighbors were killed by the police, shot in the back of there was a lot of evidence that this was an unjustified murder. there was no official recourse. people tried petitions and they tried talking to th
for his best friend and former law partner. he becomes the godfather, if you will, for the girl francis. she calls him uncle cleve which should be part of the hint because that sound creepty to me. he pays to send her to college in a day and age when women weren't educated. as frances is growing up, cleveland's relationship with her changes, changes from uncle cleve, the godfather, to a romantic interest. cleveland starts sending her letters with poems and sends her roses, and it's the full court press on courting her. >> you can watch this and other programs online at >> you're watching booktv. and now former florida governor jeb bush argues that the nation's immigration policy should be overhauled to reflect our current economic needs, but also should be b clear enough to enforce properly. this is a little under an hour.

armed patrols were completely legal. they had studied the law, they knew at what distance they needed to stand, when the guns could not be loaded in the cars, that a felon could not carry a handgun. all the very specific legislation around when and where it was legal, and they emulated some tactics that were being done in l.a. and started to patrol the police and stand up. and in this drew a local following in oakland of young adults who said that's power. that's standing up to our press sor. we're going to join in. we're not going to just sit there and talk about revolution like the revolutionary action movement, but this gives us a way to actually stand up against brutality. when this really changed to a bigger scale, right? there were these small patrols in oakland standing up and following the police and patrolling the police, when this really changed was when a young man was killed in north richmond, an unincorporated area knot of oakland. -- north of oakland. neighbors -- he was killed by police, shot in the back, and there was a lot of evidence that this was unjustified murder.
-oxley,fyrrhea, i won't go into what these names mean. many of you who study banking law, financial law will know it. each was a new set of powers for regulatory, for regulators who had recently failed. in the case of the financial crisis, financial regulators were quick on the draw with new regulations that would impose more controls on the financial industry. the fed, which arguably was most at fault for failing to see the crisis coming, got the most new powers, becoming in effect the uberregulater of the financial system with the potential eventually to regulate large insurance companies, finance companies, hedge funds and money market mutual funds as well as banks. this is truly a case of not letting a good crisis go to waste. nor has the steam gone out of the regulatory engine yet. if you read the speeches of fed officials and other bank regulators from around the world, you'll find that they are eager to somehow get control of the securities market. the code words here are "shadow banking." a clever suggestion that the securities industry is engaged in banking on the sly without the necessary
. my sister-in-law, my best friend. i grew up around teachers and having an incredible respect for the difficult job that they have every day. and i still surrounded by teachers to this day. and i think that it is because i have such respect for teachers and told them in such regard i have a tremendous believe for what they can do and the power that they have, and i refuse to believe what many folks these days say which is if kids are coming from difficult situations and poverty there is nothing the schools can do. i roundly reject that notion. i think that when children are in the classrooms of truly effective teachers even despite the fact they may face a lot of obstacles those kids can achieve the highest levels and so we should aspire to nothing short as a nation making sure every single kid is in the classroom with a highly effective teacher every single day. it's no less than what we would want for our own children and nothing different than we should want for the nation's kids. >> michelle, if the united states spends the most per capita, per student with the rank and 25
: grover cleveland's best friend and law partner was a guy named oscar fulsome. and cleveland was born in f -- new jersey and spent most of his career in buffalo. but he was a very successful lawyer, and he and oscar full be where are law partners x. they practiced law together, they went out together, they would go out drinking and eating together, and it appears that they also enjoyed the services of maria together. so when maria gets pregnant, she has a son, and either oscar, nor for grover cleveland knew who the father was. and maria complicates things by making the child os carr cleveland. cleveland kind of accepted responsibility to pay for the child to go to an orphan am, but here's where the other part of the scandal comes in. oscar folsom dies a new years later in a carriage accident. he's driving recklessly, he's flung from it, apparently
-- laws your hard was it to get to next and when you wrote about him in the 50's? >> i get a lot of credit to timothy who was the director of the nixon library. a lot of stuff was open and you can go down there and go through this coming you can go to the archives and find the more time you spend, the more things you would discover. i began to get fascinated by the notes that mix and wrote on the yellow pad he would write down almost -- ki was like an a student. everything he did and saw he would take notes. eisenhower did him a big favor in the fall all throughout asia and in vietnam he met the emperor and they basically said he saw the future in a way he didn't like it, but you can see nixon reflecting and being resentful and when he saw that eisenhower was trying to get rid of him in 1956 he was writing down things. it's the president's choice, for the good of the party to the issue is basically writing his own sort of speech. he never said it but you could find all these things and it's all there and you've got to keep looking. the other thing that is important, and tama could talk abo
and we are sinners. all of us have broken the law at some point in our lives. if you are an adult, you have broken the law at some point in your life. i find that some people say oh, yeah, i am a sinner. i have made mistakes, but don't call me a criminal. don't call me a criminal. and i say, okay, well, maybe you never drink underage or experiment with drugs. and the worst thing you have done in your entire life is speed 10 miles over the speed limit on the freeway. there are people in the united states serving life sentences. for small things. the u.s. supreme court said it is not cool and unusual punishment to sentence a young man to life imprisonment for a first-time drug offenders. even though virtually no other country in the world does that. president barack obama himself has and then into more than a little bit of drug use in his time. he has admitted to using marijuana and cocaine in his years. and if he hadn't been raised by white grandparents in hawaii, if he hadn't done much with his illegal drug use, and predominantly white college campuses and universities, if he had been
of the national archives to try to get back to tapes, congress intervened and passed a special law at the nixon library's the only library governed by one law, presidential recordings of 1974. that will stick to that first of all that we, members of the public, had the right to get any information about the use of government power. but also protected. president nixon, former now, president nixon and sued, it was a long struggle, it took years. and, in fact, only now are the tapes coming out. when i was there we released about 630 hours. there's another big dump of import material coming out i hope this year. it's taken years for the staff to come up, and that's because of richard nixon and his estate. so they did not want these tapes to come out. the same with the papers. nixon sued the national archives, and it dragged down. in fact, when i was there there were 35,000 pages that are found in the fault that i got out that had been put in there because the national archives is afraid of what richard nixon and others reaction would be. didn't change the world. there's of other really good mentor
or whatever, we could then be held criminally liable. they had to do this by law. they continue have -- don't have a choice. their report is short, and but essentially it's these folks did nothing criminal. that's what we wanted to hear. osh arranges is hard to talk about with a straight face. it it's an industrial investigate group. industrial safety, and they tried very hard to do some homework, but they are not wildland fire investigators. and so they had their reasons that they needed to investigate the fire, and their report, you can read it on the web was protested by the forest service, thankfully, excuse me, because i don't think california fire or the wild fire would be able to fight the fire if we took the rights. so the forest service protested that, got a hearing and got some of that stuff changed. that was great. the factual report, which many people think isn't factual, was done bay large group of california fire service. the problem was they were expected to produce lessons learned in a timely manner. the problem, as john talked about, is it's hard to do an exhaustive investi
if you will really did handicapped what you were able to do to carry out of law and order responsibilities you felt were necessary. do i read that right? >> let me state my own words if i can to the i remember his patriotism and i think he's a really energetic and patriotic man. i do completely support his idea of the transformation of the u.s. military. i served in europe in number of times in the diplomatic service and if you look at the military in say the year 2000, it was still largely structured to meet the ten division nestled by the army across the north german planes, not a likely ease and given the collapse of the soviet union so i was very sympathetic that rumsfeld had a transforming to make it lighter, more mobile, quicker, communication intensive and so forth and it certainly is the case that he was right about the war itself because we won the war in three short weeks shorter than anybody expected and that is without an entire division in the war plan. so he was right about that. my concern was that the fundamental job as any government, and we were the gover
money's worth of a student, i am in favor of that. >> what do you teach in law school? >> criminal call and also in the college of riss school of public affairs. >> host: what are you teaching? >> guest: society. >> host: what sparked you to say this is why exceed in college. >> host: i'm beginning to see i was seeing the same problems over and over again. things like not understanding how to side material and inadvertently getting themselves into plagiarism. they would come in and see this great new world that is college and take advantage of everything in the classroom. and i regularly immelt my students of henson. i began to see that i was sending the same females out year after year and i thought it's time to write the book therefore i can say i don't have to keep sending the e-mails. >> host: what is the best thing that parents can do to protect their kids? >> guest: one is the academic side and the best thing students can do to prepare for colleges reading and writing and i know that sounds old school but it's true today as it was when i went to college that's the best thing we ca
by that is a government that is more transparent, more accountable, more rule of law. where there are clear rules and they are enforced equally, not enforced, or not enforced as is often the case, but enforced based on who you are. i think this brings me to the what could happen. obviously, one scenario is the continuation of the status quo, which i tend to think is the most likely, certainly in the short run, because the family i think a, can't bring itself to agree on the other leader yet, and b, even though many of them say there has to be change, they don't agree on what that change is. so the status quo is the easiest thing. and the risk of that, obviously, is further economic stagnation and stall suffocatisuffocati on and more unemployment. unemployment among young saudi men, 25 and 24, is roughly 40%. and 40% of people live uzbek saudis, not foreigners, saudis live on less than $1000 a month, so they are not all rich. and, indeed, that wealth disparity is a source of anger among a lot of saudi speak another option is that the society -- there is some younger prince who tries to open up a b
despite state law because they had treaties with the national government to protect that. the supreme court ruled against them to say they cannot fish gin your ancestral waters beyond what the law says. there is a protest of 400 black chicano american indians who demonstrate outside the supreme court did not change their mind but it is an important bonding moment. and and the walk back and there were attacked by the d.c. police in many say putting your feet together and sitting in jail together you find a common cause. you really do when you sit in a jail cell. solidarity day was a climactic moment and that looks like the march on@ looks like the march on washington five years earlier and was compared to the march on washington as well. there let's talk about the negative tone that this is 1968, knight -- not 1963 and the media talked-about fell lumbering and terrible speech not the "i have a dream" speech, it was smaller but there were those that were relatively unfair but they were made. to me, the solidarity day was important but not one of the most important legacies are moments o
are sinners, all of us have done wrong, all of us have broken the law at some point in our lives. if you're an adult, you've broken the law at some point in your life. now, i find that some people say, oh, yeah, i'm a sinner, i made mistakes, but don't call me a criminal. don't call me a criminal. i say, okay, maybe you never drank underage. maybe you never experimented with drugs. well, if the worst thing you've done in your entire life is be ten miles over the speed limit on the freeway, you've put yourself and others at more risk of harm than someone smoking marijuana in a privacy of their living room, but there are people in the united states serving life sentences for first time drug offenses, life sentences. the u.s. supreme court upheld life sentences for first time drug offenders against an 8th amendment sentence that such punishments were crew and unusual, and the supreme court said, no, it's not cruel and unusual to sentence a young man to life imprisonment for first time drug offense even though in other country in the world does such a thing. we've got to end the idea that th
global govern mans. not an executive authority with a mandate telling people what to do through laws made, but a group of cities and mayors and counselors working together across borders voluntarily developing best practicing, exploring common urban virtue to solve problems that states have proven no longer able to take care of. i won't bore you here, it's boring important as it is. but with i can name for you inner city networks already in operation, you would be shocked and suppress a long yaun, the names are boring and bureaucratic, but the reality of the institutions is extraordinary. one of the most important institutions nobody has ever heard of, for example, is the united cities and local governments uclg. 3,000 cities and local authorities that meet globally every year and the networking cities around work and environment, transportation, immigration, security, and a number of other issues. i hadn't heard of it two years ago. i doubt too many people other than that the urban specialists in the room have heard of it. but it is a living organization. most people would say i know wha
big fix is the ftm fta amendment act of 2007. that law said that you have to post in a clinical trial results within one year of completion. so there is a website called chemical trial's outcome. you have to pay a 10,000-dollar a day find which would be a lock for many people. the $3.5 million a year would be a parking ticket if you are a big organization that is making billions of dollars. no routine audit again. when this was conducted and published in 2012, the road to compliance with generally astonishing. everybody knows that you have to post everything within one year. the compliance as last year was 22%. four out of five trouser ignored. the amendment, which is the single thing that is most commonly cited by people who want to blow off any of these concerns. 22%. yet no fine has ever been applied to the styles. but everyone is pretending to just do it. but even more preposterous than not, even if there had been uniformly perfect and adhered to, this law has done nothing to improve the evidence that we practice today. about 80 to 85% of the treatments we prescribed a medicine to
to go back. i had never been in trouble with the law. i told my mother, i'm going to court and my mother was so embarrassed. my mother was a very proud woman and she was embarrassed. boy i don't know why you did that, and not going to down there and i'm not going to let them send my baby to jail. i'm not going. she said earl you take that boy to court. we get down we go to to the courthouse and i remember my dad saying son, you have crossed the line this time and i don't think you are coming home with me. i am looking at him like, you don't think i'm coming home? no sun i think the judge is going to send you away. i got a little quiet and we get to court and the judge looks at me and he says to my father, mr. mr. carlos does your son have any mental deficiencies? my father said none that i know of. he said why would he do what he did? my father said that's a very good question. why don't you ask him? the judge asked me why did i burn the tree's? i told him your honor i asked my mother one day why she didn't come down and she gave me a story about caterpillars and her job. i thought i had
to a shadow force that waged more with in this country breaking in some sense every law of the land to fight for a land by the means of sabotaging, propaganda and political subversion. had congress or the american public know and at the time that roosevelt had invited them and have instructed hoover to look the of their way, she certainly would have opened himself up to impeachment proceedings. but as we know, history proved him right. we looked back on this as a just war that we should have entered. and we look back on roosevelt and on the british irregulars despite their underhanded means as on the side of the angels. so it is a case of doing wrong for the right reasons. but it's a very fraught piece of history as a result. one of my favorite lines about this period of history was uttered by earnest who was a pivotal figure. he ghost wrote many of the columns and he was an operative who basically was the dough between the british intelligence and roosevelt's brain trust. he said it was well known that the british were there and to strike america into the war and he said and i quote of cour
a bachelor of law degree and then i went into the service for two years and came out and took a v.a. course called, how to get a job. the burden of which was something to do -- go for had gone you're interested. and i wrote 110 makes and i was offered copy boy jobs, mailroom jobs. took the one at the new york times. when you got that job, according to the v.a. course, consider at it food in the door and make yourself useful to the people doing the work you've whatnot to do, and some day a task will come and somebody will be on a project or on vacation or sick and they'll look at you and say, what the heck, he knows how to bring us coffee, how to rip copy of off the machine. give the kid a break. i followed that to a t and it worked for me. and he talks about how he moved from copy boy to semi reporter at the u.n. burrough, to covering the women's page, to night rewrite to finally being sent to washington as a regional correspondent. that is, covering new york, new jersey, and connecticut. and then finally moving over to cover -- to be part of the bureau where he covered congress. so that ha
